As wild and reckless as the most incorrigible ofher male cousins, young Amy Malory has reached marriageable age, and she has set her amorous sights on a most unsuitable mate: the handsome, straightlaced ship's captain who once nearly had her uncle James hung for piracy.

Warren Anderson is shocked by the brazen advances of his despised enemy's high-spirited niece. Still tormented by an unfaithful former lover's past treachery, he is determinedto resist Amy's charms. But an overpowering yearning forthe enchanting minx threatens to defeat his defiant heart ... and force its sensuous surrender to a love that could stoke the fires of a perilous family feud.

The barmaid sighed and sighed again, because the three handsome gentlemen, all young lords by the look of them, had requested no more than drinks from her, despite her best efforts to offer them her favors as well. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars A one of a kind heroine! March 5 2004
By Jem S.
Format:Mass Market Paperback
What's the typical heroine anyway?
Well, if you're reading the usual romances, then she has to be beautiful, has sense of humor, has a way with witty comebacks, and she has enough dignity and pride to resist the hero's charms...and finally give in close to the end of the novel.
Amy Malory is all that EXCEPT of the LAST criteria mentioned. She knocked me off my feet when I first met her. Man oh man, was she ever the most daring heroine or what??? Her "brazeness" irritated Warrer Anderson but she will ABSOLUTELY drive u to tears, from laughing of course, with her up-front manners.
As for Warren, wat can I say, if u have the most down-to-the-point girl, then u'll have the most unrelenting man u'll ever meet. But I think his control was too much. It went on and on and on, I thought he'll never give up. And then, when he finally did, wat do u know, there were only a couple of pages left. I was not satisfied, I wished it was LONGER.
This is my second Malory book, and I have to say that I enjoyed this better than "Gentle Rogue". This doesn't mean that I don't like James and George...I DO! Especially on this novel. The MALLORY brothers, James & Anthony, are at it again! READ IT, it was a fun ride, and I hope it will be for u too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just Average... March 11 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Amy Malory has set her sights on Warren Anderson, an American ship captain who almost had her uncle hung for piracy. Warren tries to avoid her and fight his growing attraction. She chases him relentlessly. They end up being kidnapped, and held captive on a ship together, to voyage across an ocean. She continues to pursue, and he continues to resist her advances until finally, he gives in (of course).
It's been awhile since I've read this, and I haven't read any of the other Malory series books. Compared to other romance novels I've read, this is far from the best. I've read a couple of Lindsey's books, but I haven't found anything special about them, and have since quit reading her work. The story started out pretty good, then they were kidnapped and put on the ship. It just felt like the story took this odd, unexpected, and not so great, turn of events. Once Warren finally gives in to Amy's advances, (and we did have to wait a long time), the lack of description was a letdown. On the positive side, I did like Amy being the aggressor and the humor was pretty good. Bottom line: the book was just average, and unless you're a Lindsey fan, I'd skip it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a true Malory Feb. 7 2002
By Dana
Format:Hardcover
This book just didn't do it for me. I love the Malorys, but this story quite annoyed me.
Warren is too stubborn and grouchy for me. I love troubled heros, but I think he was too exaggerated and I couldn't find anything to like about him. While I fell in love with almost all the other heros JL has created (Tony, James, Colt, Angel, Chandos, Lachlan, you name them) Warren kept stepping on my toes.
Amy is also stubborn and determined and her love for Warren seemed more of a fixation then love. Some reviewers have said that it is quite refreshing to have the woman hunt the man for a change, but Amy's 'courting' reminded me of a spoiled child who only wants to get a new toy that her parents wouldn't buy her.
Also, the funny scenes which are so great in the previous Malorys (especially Gentle Rogue and Tender Rebel) are missing. JL tries to write them, but they were unbelievable and forced and just didn't come to life.
And finally, the difference in age is just too big. Two people separated by almost a generation (20 years) don't have almost anything in common and couldn't possibly fall for each other.
Oh, but the scene of Georgina giving birth was immensely funny.
This gets 3 stars for featuring the 'older' Malorys, not for the book in itself. Not a re-read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must read if you love the Mallory's Aug. 22 2001
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I did not agree with the people who rated this book as a bore. I have this book, in fact I have read the enitre series many times and have loved each every one.
Warren Anerson, a typical male character for a romance novel, was inhanced for the fact that he had James and Tony to match his wits against. I liked the caustic remarks and wit that was displayed from these 3 characters and found the book to be very entertaining.
I liked that Amy mallory wasn't your typical lie back and allow the man to seduce her heroine but a woman who knew her mind, heart and soul. She didn't wait for things to come to her in their own good time but went after them. she enrgetic, lively and in my humble opnion quite 3 dimensional charater. Not 1 dimensional.
I do happen to agree with another persons review that JL explained the other books too much. it does tend to grate on the nerves and she would be better off to not explain every situation time and again. This is why I rated the book 4 stars instead of five. But all in all a good read and great characters and I am like all the rest, impatiently waiting for the next Mallory/Anderson novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4th book in the Malory Series April 30 2001
By Abbys
Format:Mass Market Paperback
First off, here is the series in sequence: 1. Love Only Once 2. Tender Rebel 3. Gentle Rogue 4. The Magic of You 5. Say You Love Me 6. The Present: The Malory Holiday Novel
Even in the first book of the series, Love Only Once, Amy was described as a dreamer, aggressive and strong willed. She speaks her mind and shows her heart. So if you like woman who are the seducer in the book then this one is for you. As for me, I normally prefer the man being the seducer while the woman are innocent and naive, however, in this circumstances, I wasn't offended by the way Amy reached out to Warren. Ms. J.L. wrote it well and it wasn't disgusting or degrading to woman. Warren had a dark past that made him hard and distant to love so it is understandable that Amy should be the one to reach out to his hard heart and try to make it soft again. The Malory family conflicts, bickering & arguements is once again an add on spice to the book.
I have notice that all books in this Malory series (except for the first one) contains lots of repetitive informations. There were times I had to skip parts wherein a Malory or two will start discussing the story or happenings of the previous books, sorta like a short summarization for those who have not read it. For readers like me who have read the series in sequence, It's kindda useless info. and i won't lose anything to skip it... At first, this style of writing didn't seem to bother me but when I got to the third book of the series, the summarization of the first two books was getting to me. Imagine my restlessness when i was reading the 4th and the 5th book! I skipped more parts then cuz I didn't need to read the summary of the 3-4 previous books which i already know about. Whew! I say it would have been better for Ms. J.L. to leave readers some thrill to pick up each book and read each story for themselves.
